A friend was experiencing some financial difficulties. He was getting to the point of despair. “I don’t know what to do,” he said.
“Why don’t you ask God?” I said.
“I couldn’t do that. I’ve already asked God too many times to bail me out.”
“I don’t mean ask God to bail you out,” I said. “Ask God to show you what to do.”
“I never thought of that,” he said.
We all have access to the greatest resource in the world. We don’t have to sign up, register, or pay dues. Wherever we are, whatever we’re facing, all we need to do is ask our Higher Power what to do next. Why is it that the simplest things in life can be the hardest things to do?
Application: Got financial problems? Relationship problems? Facing a quandary in life? Stepping into the vast wilderness called the unknown? If we’ve run out of our own answers, it is time to ask for guidance. Or better yet, we can ask for guidance before running out of our own resources. Asking for guidance—for knowledge of God’s Will for us and the power to carry that out—is a good thing to do as needed and each day.
